    I'm getting the 12263 incorrect or unexpected error message error when trying to reach an https:// cPanel or WHM URL. I've taken a good hard look at httpd.conf and perhaps I am missing something, but I don't see any issues with the SSL entries. I've tried updating the server and recompiling Apache but that has not worked as well.

    Here's what I'm getting in the error log for Apache:
    [Mon Mar 31 21:12:01 2008] [error] [client xx.xxx.xx.xxx] Invalid method in request \x16\x03\x01

    Any ideas - seems it would have to be an issue with httpd.conf, perhaps I'm missing something?

    Note, the cPanel, WHM and Webmail interfaces are served by cpsrvd, not Apache.

    Thanks for clarifying that, David.

    I'm still confused. The problem seems to be limited to when I use /cpanel or /whm under https://. If I use the correct port then it works fine. I'm going to play around some more and see if I can come up with something.

    The /cpanel and /whm redirects are handled by Apache (in that they are redirected to a CGI script that in turn redirects to the proper ports).

    You might check that CGI is working properly and that the CGI redirection scripts in /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/ or not old, malformed, etc.
